Trusted Bowed Basement Walls in Alvwood, Minnesota
Going into your basement and seeing a bowed wall isn't something any homeowner wants to see. It can be alarming to come across a wall in this kind of condition, but putting off the repair work is only going to cause more problems for your entire home. Why is it so important to act fast? Letting the problem go could mean a wall collapsing into your home. Obviously, nobody wants this problem in their home. That's why it is a far better idea to let the experts take a look at your wall, and then they will advise you as to what the plan of action is for getting it upright once again.
Causes of Leaning Walls
A lot of homeowners want to know why they have this problem to begin with. After all, they feel like they take good care of their property, and maybe their home isn't really even that old. However, you need to understand that it doesn't matter how old or new your home is, you can still have this problem. The main cause of the issue is hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. Clay-rich soil around your home absorbs a TON of moisture when it rains. This causes the soil to swell up and it puts a lot of pressure (hydrostatic pressure) on your basement walls. Over time, this causes the walls to lean into the home. Fortunately, total wall replacement isn't the only solution to this problem anymore.
Fixing Bowing Walls
We install SafeBasements™ wall anchors when homeowners having bowed walls in their homes. The installation process begins with the anchor being installed in stable, strong soil deep within the earth. After the anchor is in place, a plate will be attached on the basement wall that is damaged. The two will be connected with a strong rod which can be tightened over time to provide the necessary lateral pressure to push the wall back into a straight position. Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather.
